    1*4ei5BauP4guZgARxrY3Aqg.jpeg

    Rights & Democracy and the Upper Valley Young Liberals present an afternoon of music, food, and political action with special guest US Sen. Bernie Sanders!

    The Labor Day Celebration marks the second anniversary of Rights & Democracy, your local grassroots organization that is bringing progressive political change to communities throughout Vermont, and supporting candidates, and community leaders, who are making it happen.

    All summer, Rights & Democracy has been holding community forums to build a true people's agenda in Vermont as we head into the 2018 election.

    Nationally, Sanders' Our Revolution has been building momentum behind their People's Platform.

    Join us and hear from Bernie and local progressive leaders about legislative issues like raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, enacting paid family and medical leave, universal primary care, energy democracy, and much more!

    Find out what you can do next to keep up the fight in our community and in Vermont to put people and the planet over profits.

    Together We Win!

    Music by Wendigo

    The event is free and open to the public.
